Linux Creator Linus Torvalds Ditches Intel CPU Over AMD Threadripper

Linux Creator Linus Torvalds Ditch Intel CPU Over AMD Threadripper 640x404

Have you heard that Linux creator Linus Torvalds has upgraded his personal desktop, replacing his previous Intel CPU with the AMD Threadripper 3970x?

A few days ago, with the release of Linux Kernel 5.7-rc7, Linus Torvalds shared his biggest excitement of the week. After a long span of 15 years, he has finally upgraded his personal desktop, replacing his previous Intel CPU with the AMD Threadripper 3970x.

Linus further confirmed that he has not yet switched to ARM, rather he has only dropped his Intel-based CPU to adopt AMD. However, in 2015 while expressing his views on security and the future of ARM-powered laptops, Linus affirmed having a machine with an ARM in the coming year.
